"Anvil! The Story of Anvil" To Make New York Film Premiere

The New York premiere of Anvil! The Story of Anvil--the story of the Toronto band Anvil that influenced bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, and the band members' ongoing quest to reach a wider audience--will take place a BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) during its annual Sundance Institute at BAM series which highlights films from the Sundance Film Festival.

Saturday, May 31 at 6:30pm
Following by a LIVE CONCERT with Anvil in BAMcafe.

The Details:
At 14, Toronto school friends Steve “Lips” Kudlow and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, went on to influence bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax. But Anvil’s career took a different path—straight to obscurity. Director Sacha Gervasi has concocted a wonderful and often moving account of Anvil's last-ditch quest for elusive fame and fortune in this documentary film.

The premier will be followed by a live concert by Anvil in BAMcafé. BAM Rose Cinemas + BAMcafe are located in the Peter Jay Sharp building at 30 Lafayette Avenue (between St Felix Street and Ashland Place) in the Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 26 and are $11. Tickets are available at the box office, by phone at 718.777.FILM, or online at BAM.org. For more information, call the BAMcinématek hotline at 718.636.4100 or visit www.bam.org/sundance.
